My day job as of last June until year’s end is to assist Kathleen Morrissey in the development of research and information that will be used to complete a feasibility study to determine if our Ozarks Highlands might be eligible for National Heritage Area status. It would let our artists and craftspeople market their wares from one website, and would help people interested in cultural tourism see all the things, people and places this beautiful part of the country has to offer (it ain’t all meth labs, folks. Not even close) Best of all, it doesn’t involve taking property or even putting land under a special designation or rules of any kind. It just certifies that this part of the world is unique and has something to say for itself. Lots of work in the research, since it involves many community meetings and collecting a lot of stories. but the stories themselves and quite wonderful. As jobs go, this one ain’t half bad.
Listen to or read the narrative of the latest installment of the classic Ozarks commentary by beloved Ozarks singer and storyteller Marideth Sisco, host of the long-running series, These Ozarks Hills.

Good work Marideth and Kathleen. If the Ozarks highlands don’t deserve National Heritage Area status then I don’t know who does! Consider this my signature on the petition!
Consider this my agreement and signature for the Heritage Area petition! And I sure would like to buy your book! Let me know your mailing address and I will send you a check!
I am so proud of you and Kathleen to take on this feasibility study and of course the beautiful Ozark Highlands deserve the National Heritage status!! Add my name to this petition, please. I also want to buy your book. I am fascinated with all you do. Take care and as my mother used to say…”don’t wear yourself out.” Best wishes, Margaret
